A great place to make fast cash.

Server (Former Employee)
Hayward, CA

I worked at Darden

ProsA great place to work to make fast cash. Loved being able to go in broke and come home with $100-$150 a night. I loved the fact that server's didn't do sidework.

ConsWorking long and late hours, put a lot of strain on my back, and came home smelling like the kitchen.

Advice to Senior ManagementSplit shits are the worst thing ever invented; you spend your entire day at work. Please offer more incentives besides Olive Garden gift cards.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
